The Story
Nothing is quite as it seems in this sleepy Spanish village of Madrid. The audience is quickly drawn into a world where paintings can talk, people climb ladders without leaning them against walls and simply laying a table can turn into an act of juggling and balancing. There is even the chance to learn the ‘Dali Direction Rap’.Oh and watch out for the weather forecast because in Madrid it's a real experience!
